Luxembourg's Royal newlyweds are to give thousands of euros to help elderly people living in the Grand Duchy and social entrepreneurs.

As part of their wedding celebrations last October, Prince Guillaume and Princess Stéphanie asked people not to give gifts but to make donations to the Fondation du Grand-Duc et de la Grande-Duchesse.

Their philanthropic gesture helped raise 157,810 euros to fund a series of social projects managed by the Fondation. The majority of the funds will be invested in projects helping elderly people in Luxembourg as well as social entrepreneurship.

The Hereditary Grand Duke and Duchess thanked all donors for their generosity and solidarity.
